Superintendent Davis' update included the following topics:
|School Board Member|
|16. D1 - Discuss and give direction on process for employing legal services|
|DJD letter to CCSB, Oct 2018.pdf|
Chair Studdard opened the floor for discussion. Board members expressed their opinions.
In light of the timing issue, Dr. D'Agata encouraged the Board to proceed with looking for viable candidates during November. This would still allow the new Board to make the final decision on the candidates. He expressed his opinion that given the workload on both sides, two positions are justified. He noted that cost-savings and better services would likely be achieved with an in-house attorney for staff that could respond to daily needs and operational concerns. He also noted that the Clay County Board of County Commissioners successfully utilized the services of Colin Baenziger & Associates not so long ago in finding and placing an excellent County Attorney.
Following discussion, the Board agreed to move the time for the workshop on November 26, 2018, to begin at 8:00 a.m. so that an additional item could be added to the agenda for further discussion on legal services.
